Polynesian leg band tattoo with palm trees
Polynesian tattoos originated among tribes living on the Polynesian islands scattered over the central and southern Pacific Ocean, so it makes sense that many Polynesian tattoos incorporate tropical symbols like sea turtles, waves and palm trees. This person has a Polynesian tattoo inked in black and white in a band around their leg, just below the knee. The leg tattoo features a variety of traditional Polynesian symbols, including geometric triangles, and also includes a couple of different wave designs and two symmetrical black palm trees. Although there are many different Polynesian tattoo designs out there, the majority of these tattoos represent power, courage, protection and bravery.
